Another busy week behind me, another busy week ahead of me, my to do list is always full – but if I do it all to glorify God, serving my family is a joy instead of a chore. So here goes!
1.) Bible Study: Morning devotions using this site to study my bible chronologically. Also, catching up on the sermon I missed this Sunday via podcast and working on scripture memorization. (Yes, I missed another one! The kids caught colds last weekend and are still SICK. 🙁 )
2.) “MUST Do” List:
- Stick to my daily schedule (as God allows) for morning devotions, taking care of the home and home-schooling.
- Finish organizing papers & bills, especially taking care of the Action pile. – Didn’t work on that at all last week, and now it’s to the point that I HAVE to get it ALL done THIS week. *sigh*
- Finish organizing Princess’ worksheet binder for school. (I didn’t get this done last week either, but I’m striking it from the list til next week considering the previous task.)
- Make more laundry soap!! (I have enough left for one more load!)
- Iron Big Daddy’s clothes for each day, as a labor of love.
3.) Taking Care of My Home:
Daily Chores and then focus on these areas for weekly chores:
- Monday – Kitchen; Wash Lights

4.) Training My Children:
